The Pretenders vs. Carrie Underwood



I’ll Stand By You
The Pretenders
Oh
Why you look so sad
Tears are in your eyes
Come on and come to me now
Don't
Be ashamed to cry
Let me see you through
'Cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothin' you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So
If you're mad
Get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now
Hey
What you got to hide
I get angry too
Well I'm a lot like you
When you're standing at the crossroads
And don't know which path to choose
Let me come along
'Cause even if you're wrong

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in
Into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

And when
When the night falls on you baby
You're feelin' all alone
You won't be on your own

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Take me in
Into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
Yeah

Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you
No no no no no
Take me in
Into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
Won’t let nobody hurt you
I’ll stand by you



I’ll Stand By You
Carrie Underwood
Oh
Why you look so sad

Don't

Let me see you through
'Cause I've seen the dark side too
When the night falls on you
You don't know what to do
Nothin' you confess
Could make me love you less

I'll stand by you
I'll stand by you
I won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

So
If you're mad
Get mad
Don't hold it all inside
Come on and talk to me now

And don't know which path to choose

I'll stand by you
I won't let nobody hurt you
I'll stand by you

I'll stand by you
Take me in
Into your darkest hour
And I'll never desert you
I'll stand by you

Oh
I'll stand by you
I’ll stand by you

Oh my I thought for sure I would vote The Pretenders. But, when I started watching Carrie Underwood's video I was moved to tears.

She certainly is not the better female vocalist in my opinion. But the video is very moving and displays a much less selfish view point to the meaning of the words of this lovely song!!

Carrie gets my vote. Not for her voice but for the way she used the song!!

Carrie did ok but I vote for the Pretenders

Thanks for stopping by again, my dear Ann!!! I can't remember just where I was at the time, but I do remember that it was while I was out on the truck in the middle of a very dark night when I first heard The Pretenders' version. It absolutely blew me away--especially in regards to such an incredibly beautiful song in a number of different ways coming from a quasi-punk band! This was, of course, before He allowed and enabled me to understand that He also reaches out to us in ways that we would naturally doubt, but it sure doesn't take much of an imagination to think of Him writing that song for all of us.
